Default Shabbona report 12/28/02

fished the no motor zone from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m - this was the first trip for the new Vexilar FL-18 - the Vex did not disappoint - I used it to check holes drilled by earlier fishermen - I did not mark any fish - I drilled my own hole near a pile of trees around 4:00 p.m - the Vex marked fish near the bottom - I caught four small crappies and one small perch on an ice jig tipped with spikes - it was cool to see them come off the bottom to meet my jig - the ice was a solid four inches - there were about 20 fishermen there when I pulled in - there were walking around the NMZ, around both sides of Somonauk Point (pier #1) and out to the campground cribs - however, it looked like that was as far as one could go since much of the middle of the lake is still open water (lots of geese in the water) - by the way, I could not get any bites on waxworms or minnows, and the bites I did get were very light - I had many more fish come look at the jig but not bite it - anyway, thank you Santa Wife for the new Vex - I think it might be one of the best gifts ever - as always, good fishing to all.
